Saints Host Bucs in Renewed Rivalry on Sunday Week 2 Betting

NFL Betting: Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New Orleans Saints Informatio

At the onset of the season were concerns about Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.  Brady disappeared for 11 days during the peak of training camp.  And there was rumored to be trouble in paradise with his supermodel wife.  But Brady shut down all the talk in an NBC Sunday Night Football win at the Dallas Cowboys.  This week brings a betting on NFL matchup at the arch-rival New Orleans Saints.  Last week the Saints escaped Atlanta with a win over the Falcons.  First year head coach Dennis Allen is off to a promising start.

Buccaneers vs. Saints CashBet Wagering Analysis

On this occasion, online sportsbook action will be split.  Squares will lean with the Brady-led Buccaneers.  In contrast, sharps will look hard at those 3-points with the dangerous home dog Saints.

Brady Bunch Stuns Cowboys 

Last Sunday Night, the Buccaneers earned an impressive 19-3 win at the Cowboys as 2.5-point away favorites.  Tampa Bay and Dallas went over the Betting on football total of 49.5.  The Bucs are 1-0 straight up and against the spread with 0-1 under the total.

At the onset, Tom Brady started the first 45-year-old quarterback in NFL history.  Brady looked refreshed and quite a bit like the younger versions.  On the other hand, Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys were left looking old and feckless.  Brady and Mike Evans connected on a punctuating touchdown.  In comparison, Leonard Fournette ran for 127 yards.  And the Buccaneers dominated the Cowboys 19-3 in a season opener Sunday night. 

Brady was in control throughout the game.  Despite an extended break during training camp to attend to personal issues.  The seven-time Super Bowl champ got a big assist from the defense.  And it was a successful debut for head coach Todd Bowles.  Following three seasons as Tampa Bay defensive coordinator.

In turn, Brady improved to 7-0 against the Cowboys.  He was 18 of 27 for 212 yards with an interception.  But that pick didn’t amount to much.  Cause by Prescott and receiver Noah Brown not connecting on an easy third-down throw near midfield early in the fourth quarter. 

Saints March Out With Win

Last week the Saints scored a 27-26 NFL bets over the Falcons as 6-point road favorites.  New Orleans and Atlanta want over the total of 43.5.  The Saints are 1-0 straight up, 0-1 against the spread, and 1-0 over the total.

Consider that the Saints had a new coach, several players returning from injuries, and a 16-point deficit in the fourth quarter.  Yet none of it flustered the Saints, who pulled off a stunning comeback Sunday.  Wil Lutz kicked a 51-yard field goal with 19 seconds remaining.  Following Jameis Winston guiding a pair of lighting-quick touchdown drives.  After struggling offensively through most of the season opener, the Saints finally found their rhythm.

In turn, Winston threw for 269 yards after going down last season on Halloween with a knee injury.  Michael Thomas hauled in a pair of fourth-quarter TD passes in his first game since the 2020 season.  Meanwhile, Lutz delivered at the end with a clutch kick.  He showed that he’s fully recovered from a core issue that kept him out for all of 2021.

Winston hooked up with Thomas on touchdown passes of three and nine yards.  The Saints converted one 2-point try but failed on the other.  Thus, the Falcons were clinging to a 26-24 lead.  Subsequently, New Orleans got the ball back one more time, taking over at its own 20 with 48 seconds remaining and no timeouts.  From there, Winston and Lutz delivered.  It was a stirring start to the Allen era.
